Bilansky added. Artists have been looking for something like this for years, adding exposure to the music they record, and perform all over the state. “Stars Over Texas” debuts at the perfect time, as artists return to live performances following the Covid-19 pandemic. “While watching the recent country music awards featuring the top country artists in Nashville. Both Mike and I noticed something. There were very few artists wearing cowboy hats. It’s something we all do proudly in Texas. One of us then said, our channel will be putting the “Cowboy Back in Country.” And that’s exactly what we intend to do.” said Lash.
